Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
Hello again Lovely Innkeepers!
Lots of changes to social media this past month! Pinterest has rolled out Analytics. Google+ has changed cover photos and made some other changes. Twitter is offering more options for advertisers. Facebook has rolled out multiple changes (and will continue to do so in the next few months), one of the most important ones being some major changes to their cover policy Terms of Service. Some of the posts below go into more detail about each in depth.
I was going to write a post about Buffer, it being one of my favorite time saving applications online, but these wonderful people beat me to it. The Buffer Social App May Be A Time Saver for You http://smallbiztrends.com/2013/03/social-sharing-app-buffer.html
A few free helpful online applications or information:
Easily make cover images (with text) for Facebook Business and Personal pages and Google+ Pages and Profiles.
Facebook Cover Compliance Tool
Don’t want to be locked into email templates provided by Vertical Response, Constant Contact etc?
Help for hacked sites
This is kind of a neat tool, at a loss for things to blog about, or blog titles?
